On Saturday, February 22 CM2 co-hosted an event at GirlDayUT with the WTS Heart of Texas Chapter. The event is organized to help introduce young girls to STEM professions.
CM2 hosted a session called “Building a City out of Candy” which allowed girls to design mini cities out of gum drops, tooth picks, twizzlers, and many other types of candy. Girls toyed with the idea of urbanism and what makes a good city. They constructed parks, bridges, roads, houses, bike paths, among other infrastructure to contribute to a greater city which was placed in the front of the classroom.
We want to give a special shout out to those who donated to help us purchase the candy and supplies for our event. Special thank you to COX McLain Environmental Consulting, AECOM, Alliance Transportation Group and Lisa Loftus-Otway for helping make this event possible! We are proud to say that there was a line out door to get into the session most of the day!
